Kia Alternator Replacement Service


Carriage Kia of Woodstock Alternator Replacement

The alternator charges your car’s battery and provides power to it when starting your car in the morning in Canton. The alternator also can help power your car’s computing and electrical systems if the battery is weakened or is unable to provide the power needed. The alternator is a part that’s easy to ignore when it’s working but when it starts failing performance issues are apparent and make daily operation very difficult if not preventing it entirely.


Signs of a Bad Alternator

When your Kia’s alternator starts going out there are several signs. These signs include several tries to get the car to start, internal lights dimming or flickering, warning lights, the car stalling, electrical systems failing, or in some cases the car not starting at all. Another sign of a bad alternator is that it does not charge the battery enough leading to inconsistent performance and random stalling in Acworth when you try to start the car.

Dangers of a Bad Alternator

When your Kia’s alternator starts having performance issues in many cases it doesn’t go out entirely all at once. As your car may still be operational it can be tempting to keep driving until the alternator completely fails but that can be very hazardous. A bad alternator is very unpredictable and while your car may start there is no guarantee it will start again when you park it at a local Rosell business. This can easily leave you stranded or on a roadside, in addition, your electrical systems and lighting system can randomly fail and have reduced engine performance.

How Long Do Alternators Last?

Alternators can last a very long time and some car owners report their alternator working past 200,000 miles if not more. However, other car owners report having to replace their alternator after only 50,000 miles. In the broader sense, the average lifespan for alternators is roughly 100,000 to 150,000 miles or seven years. With no specific lifespan, alternators should be replaced when they start showing any of the above-noted performance issues before they fail entirely.
